Library/Media Center Selection Policy and Library/Instructional Materials Consideration Requests

It provides consistency in developing the collection and in communicating the Library/Media Center’s policies to the school community (students, faculty, staff & families) and other interested stakeholders.  It is understood that this document is fluid and that changes in the curriculum, demographics, information needs or programs of the school will require updates to the collection and its governing policies.
